Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 30 oz. corn (non GMO)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 2 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 2 cups plain unsweetened almond milk
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
Instructions
  1. Chop up the onion, celery and potatoes. Shred the chicken and have your ingredients ready by the stove.
  2. Place the onion, celery and olive oil in large pot along with about 4 Tbsp olive oil on medium high heat. Sauté until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Next, add the corn and continue to sauté another 5 minutes until they begin to brown.
  3. Add in the chicken broth, potatoes and oregano. Let simmer until the potatoes are cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. Stir periodically to prevent sticking on the bottom of the pot.
  4. Once the potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a fork, add in the shredded chicken, salt, and cayenne pepper.
  5. In a separate bowl, measure out the corn starch. Add about 1 Tbsp of almond milk and stir, then another tbsp until it is smooth. Stir in the remaining amount of the milk. Add to soup and stir immediately. This will help thicken the soup within seconds.
  6. Once thickened, turn the burner to low heat.
  7. With an immersion blender, blend the soup for about 15-20 seconds. Blend as much or as little as you want depending on desired consistency.
